As long as you have adequate ventilation and keep your spray booth quite a few feet away from the woodstove, you will do just fine. Perfect world, you would have seperate finishing room. Not so perfect world, throw drop cloths down on anyting you don’t want overspray on. I’m cheap, but I’ve had great sucess with Harbor Freight hvlp gun, even shooting the cheap poly acrylic available at big lumber box stores. I can shoot a finish coat in morning and ship in early afternoon if I had to. Its amazing how much faster and how much better the finish is when sprayed with gun…also how little finish you use. Your profit will skyrocket between the time you save spraying it with gun and how little finish is needed when spraying. Just be sure you have filters on comoressor and gun! When you get a chance, order some non Minwax finish if you don’t already, and you’ll see a huge difference…Minwax is pretty basic to put it nicely.
Good luck!
